I picked up this 94' Jetta for $3000 a few days ago. Its a chipped 2.0 8v with a Neuspeed supercharger and cold air intake. It has a Gti front end, straight body, clean black leather interior. Its fast and i'm happy with it but there are a few issues i'd like to get some help with. The brakes won't hold pressure. If I compress it quickly it will hold pressure briefly and slow the car but then go all the way to the floor. I bled them and it did nothing, which leads to to think its my master cylinder. Also, its quite hard to get it into gear at times. And sometimes makes a firm clunking sound when put into gear, with an occasional grind. The guy I bought it from said he just recently put a new clutch in it. So, could it be the shifter linkages needs adjusting? I've heard VW's commonly have issues with that. Another thing is it has a very low and kind of choppy idle, which could very possibly just be caused by the supercharger but i'm not sure. Finally, the throttle is very stiff, and I mean VERY stiff. I have no idea why or what could cause that. So with all that being said I would very much appreciate any input or advice for my problems. Or tips on how to make this thing a true beast.
